Queensland AFL clubs announce drought appeal

The Gold Coast SUNS and Brisbane Lions will band together this weekend, as the two Queensland clubs urge fans to dig deep and donate to drought-stricken farmers during Saturday’s QCLASH at Metricon.

Queensland as a whole will give $9 million dollars to drought relief programs and appoint two new commissioners to oversee the issue.

Over 50 per cent of the State has been declared in drought and SUNS Chief Executive, Mark Evans, said the footy clubs want to do their bit.


“We want to play our role in helping raise funds and drive awareness at Metricon Stadium on Saturday,” he said.

“There will be a number of different initiatives, which will focus on raising money for the cause.

“I’d encourage all SUNS fans and football supporters across the country to give generously to the Queensland Drought Appeal.”
